foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle from Dave-o. Almost black headless dunkel. Faint, smokey liquorice malt aroma. Taste is initially malty with sweetness like fruit cake, then smoke. Dry bittersweetness. Thin mouthfeel. Very drinkable English dunkel, lacking the bitter intensity of its German cousins.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Pours a bit flat and has a thin palate and body for a 5.5 ABV. Light chocolate and vineous aroma, sweet malt on the tongue, short finish.Expected quite a lot more from this.

superflyguy (437) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2012
for me a bit too thin to carry the fullflavour which is on offer. my first dunkel, so that may be OK. good deep brown colour. plenty of nuttiness and sweet matliness in the flavour. very drinkable....... in fact it’s gone already!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2012
On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a black colour with a thin, light tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, coffee and Weetabix. Similar flavours with a lovely burnt toast finish. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 29, 2012
Cask at The Bow Bar. Dark, clear brown. Nice dark malt flavour. Nods at the German style. Light roastyness and a dry, tart finish.

FatPhil (14014) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2012
Cask (CWAF2012, Fri)
Lovely authentic german dunkel nose, perhaps a little less sweet than many, nicely nutty and dry, as well as decently toasted. Full palate. Really good brown nutty roast in the taste. A lot of German brewers could learn from this beer, this is a very tasty well attenuated dunkel.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
Cask (hand pump) at the Darlington Spring Thing Beer Festival 2011. ABV is 4.6%. Chestnut colour, low head. Malty and nutty aroma. Nutty flavour, a hint of caramel, but very dry for a dunkel. Fairly bitter hops in the finish.

BeerViking (4195) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2010
500ml bottle, pours a dark chestnut with a fast-vanishing beige head. Dry malt on the nose with hints of treacle and dried date, the palate is roasty with burnt treacle and roasted hazelnut notes, and a sharp lasting bitter aftertaste. Nice but somehow a bit too thin-bodied to carry the roast flavours.
